10 Top Tourist Attractions in France – Travel Video


Famous for its wines and cheeses, France is
the world’s most popular tourist destination receiving 82 million foreign tourists annual. Visitors are attracted by historic cities,
a beautiful countryside, the castles of the Loire Valley, and Brittany and Normandy. In addition, France offers an agreeable climate,
some excellent beaches on the French Riviera, the Atlantic coast and the island of Corsica,
wide possibilities for winter sports, most notably in the Alps and the Pyrenees, and
a rich culture with food and wines that are among the most celebrated in the world. Here’s a look at the top tourist attractions
in France. Number 10. Millau Bridge. The Millau Viaduct is a cable bridge that
happens to be the tallest bridge in the world at 1,125 feet. The four-lane bridge spans the valley of the
River Tarn in southern France. Opening in 2004, the bridge is considered
one of France greatest engineering feats. Number 9. Pont du Gard. The Pont du Gard is an old Roman bridge that
crosses the River Gardon in southern France. Built around 40 AD, it was part of a long
watercourse to bring water from a spring in Uzes to the Roman colony of Nimes. At 160 feet tall, it is the highest of all
the Roman aqueduct bridges. Number 8. Carcassonne. Cite de Carcassonne is an historic fortified
city in the Languedoc-Roussillon region. The city dates back about 2,500 years and
became part of France in the mid-13th century. At one time it was the center of the French
woolen textile industry. A 19th-century restoration project of the
Cité turned Carcassonne into the popular tourist destination it is today. Number 7. Chartres Cathedral. The Chartres Cathedral is located in a small
city near Paris that seems too small to fit the Cathedral. The vast nave, the porches adorned with fine
sculptures and the magnificent 12th- and 13th-century stained-glass windows, all in remarkable condition,
make it one of the finest examples of the French High Gothic style. Number 6. Chateau de Chambord. The château to end all châteaux, the Chateau
de Chambord is a masterpiece of the French Renaissance. Construction of the Chateau de Chambord started
in 1519 by King François I so he could hunt in the nearby forests. The cold and massive 440 rooms of the Château
made it unpopular as an actual residence and François I himself stayed here for less than
40 days in total. Number 5. Gorge du Verdon. The Gorge du Verdon, located in southeastern
France, is considered one of Europe’s most beautiful river canyons. It’s at its deepest at almost 2,300 feet
in an area that offers the best views as the green emerald Verdon River winds its way through
the canyon. Number 4. Mont Saint-Michel. Mont Saint Michel is a small tidal island
located just off the coast of Normandy. A spectacular and well-preserved Norman Benedictine
Abbey of St Michel stands at the peak of the rocky island, surrounded by the winding streets
and convoluted architecture of the medieval town. A causeway connects the mainland with the
island. Number 3. Palace of Versailles. The Palace of Versailles is frequently associated
with Marie Antoinette, the French queen who was beheaded during the French Revolution. The royal palace started out as a hunting
lodge in 1624 and became more ornate over the years. Located outside of Paris, Versailles is known
for the Hall of Mirrors and beautiful gardens. Number 2. St Tropez. St Tropez is a resort community on the French
Riviera. Once a military stronghold, fishing village
and artist colony, it is now a playground for the jetset. The beaches are popular with scantily clad
sunbathers, while others come for windsurfing, sailing and yachting. Outside peak summer there are less celebrities
to spot but you’ll also instantly appreciate what lured artists, writers and film makers
to this picturesque village. Number 1. Eiffel Tower. The Eiffel Tower is the symbol of Paris. The tower was built by Gustave Eiffel as the
entrance arch for the International Exhibition of Paris of 1889. At 1,063 feet tall, it is still the highest
building in Paris, offering stunning vistas of the city below. Since its construction more than 200,000,000
people have visited the Eiffel Tower making it the most visited paid tourist attraction
in the world.

  1. Albi ! Top city medieval. I was born there.
    Beautiful cathedral built after the crusade against the cathare.
    Le viaduc de Millau ? Vous êtes sérieux ? xD

  2. To me, the best site is Chambord, along with the other castles of the Loire valley. It's the perfect mixture of Art and History and the visits are really enjoyable even with kids. There is great food & wine, and the area is the cradle of the standard French language. People are friendly and nicer than in the South, where they can be a little proud and aggressive.

  3. What a Beautiful Country 😍😍..I wish to Visit the Fashion capital of The world.

  4. very nice informative tips thank you.
    see more new traveling videos search on google: VideoTop com.

  5. I'll visit Paris one day when I've enough money to go there.. ❤️❤️

  6. 💕ⓈⓊⓅⒺⓇ ⓋⒾⒹⒺⓄ💕 😍🌸 I love your videos. You did have some great experiences. How lucky!

  7. Am living in Chennai India 😊 aim to visit France once.. My dream… I 😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍

  8. Alright, don't know if you noticed but the Château de Chambord is transforning into the Château de Blois, which is also considered as a Châteaux de la Loire but is a different one. Chambord also has a magnificent staircase, designed by Leonardo da Vinci, but it is indoors…

  9. How did this manage to talk about Versailles with no mention of Louis XIV?? And I think there were a few shots of Blois on the Chambord feature? Also, there is NO WAY St. Tropez is number 2 tourist attraction. You can't get within 30 miles of it in summer. I've lived in France since 1975 and never been there.

  10. The Millau bridge IS impressive, but the height is measured to the top of the towers. The distance from the roadbed to the ground below, however, is a different matter. The Royal Gorge bridge in Colorado is almost 20 meters higher.

  11. Hoping to live in France in the future, and maybe even make some travel videos there! Thanks for the inspiration and ideas of where to live!

  12. I'm a traveller too
    I traveled many countries and cities also beautiful islands in asia in 8 years
    I'm still young and I love to visit all around the world ,this is my dream to travel all around the world And see new cultures and different customs
    I love it
    Next month I'm gonna visit France and continue Italy, Germany, Spain, Switzerland and Belgium but everything depends on France embassy who they give me visa or not ,they have many difficult rules
    because I live in Iran
    Anyway I hope all of you and I visit France and others country soon as possible

  13. Do you have to know French to go there? All the names are in French. It is hard to pronounce.

  14. The most visiting Country in the World because it’s much easier to get a visa than USA. Everyone wants to visit US or even wants to live here but it’s not easy to do like other Countries …..

  15. Congratulations for your Veterans Day France on 11th November from your friends in Germany <3

  16. how come lourdes is not included as one of the most visited place in france. thousands go there every year and I am one of them. your recommendation is not accurate

  18. c'est un merveilleux pays européen , en peut dire que tout les écrivains et les poètes savent la France bien et sa paradis aussi .

  19. Most of the Paris is given go by but for Eiffel Tower. Why? Seine definitely deserved mention.

  20. My most favorite dream country. I am so obsessed with France! Love from Philippines. ❤️

  21. almost stupid ranking,( overcrowded places, tourits traps, … ) there are dozens of more beautiful places in France.

  22. France is beautiful country .I am Montagnard indigenous Central highland the France Indochine called us Montagnard.

  23. I m french
    no one care about the bridge and st-tropez is over-estimated

    Nothing about the alpes and corsica ?

  24. I love to travel. I find that, although it's a passion, it can also be very expensive, if you don't have a good budget. France is a beautiful place to visit, with food and architecture. You could spend so much time in it's gorgeous venues.There is so much to see in its artistic design. A lovely canvas of creativity. If you like to journey to places, that have been viewed in this vibrant, romantic video click on this link https://youtu.be/d-reRxPgaAo. so you can find out how to save up to $500. dollars on destinations all around the globe. Happy traveling.

  25. The definition of “tourist attractions” is dubious. Surely there is more to Paris than the Eiffel Tower! So many other points to be made about this pretty useless exposition.

  26. https://ffashionszone7.blogspot.com/2019/03/procurez-vous-un-tout-nouveau-galaxy-s10.html

  27. As a French man I can say Saint-Tropez is really overrated. Just going 20km from this place you can find the village of Sainte-Maxime which is in my opinion a much better touristic experience.

  28. Sincerly, it is impossible to explain France in a dozen of minutes. I would be necessary to have at least a dozen of minutes by provinces, either 22 provinces multipled by 10. And on !!!!

  29. Hey Guys and Girls, I am planning to visit Paris on 20th – 22nd April alone. Is there anyone visiting on same dates

  30. Having been to both the United Kingdom and France I would have to say that France is my favorite.

  31. At 4:54 it's not Chambord but "château de Blois".

  32. France is really the Most Beautiful Country in the Entire World!😍🇫🇷

  33. i like french man,they are headsome and romatic .they are friendly to me help me give me food ,guide for me for my.short to rent the bike .

  34. forget Saint-Tropez… not interesting, better go to Marseille or Toulon

  35. Number 6 shows the Château de Chambord with the castle of Blois, composed of three wings, that of Louis XII, with its equestrian statue, that of François 1st with its famous spiral staircase, and finally that of Gaston d ' Orleans, the brother of Louis XIII.

  36. Can't be too serious of a video if you did not include the Louvre or Notre Dame (in spite of the fire).

  37. COCO NANDY went to France years and years ago. He loved the food, but the hardest part was learning a new language.

  38. I hope to visit my dream country France specially paris huhu hope could go there from philippines

  39. I have a question ? Pls reply me
    Is the life cheap or expensive in france ? Because maybe me and my family go there to live 😍

  40. Франция, известная своими винами и сырами, является самым популярным туристическим направлением в мире, принимающим 82 миллиона иностранных туристов в год. Посетителей привлекают исторические города, живописная местность, замки долины Луары, а также Бретань и Нормандия. Кроме того, Франция предлагает приятный климат, несколько превосходных пляжей на Французской Ривьере, атлантическом побережье и острове Корсика, широкие возможности для зимних видов спорта, особенно в Альпах и Пиренеях, и богатую культуру с едой и винами, которые являются одними из самых знаменитых в мире.
